Muslim graves in a cemetery in the Swiss city of Lausanne have been vandalised. Fifteen out of 22 Muslim graves had Islamophobic slogans written on them over the weekend, according to local police.
A specific section of the Bois-de-Vaux cemetery in the French-speaking city has been reserved for Muslims since 2016, a decision that has caused a lot of controversy.
Lausanne police said they are investigating the incident and authorities said the vandalism is being repaired. Pierre-Antoine Hildebrand, the city's security director, told the Swiss News Agency on Monday that the city officials are "reflecting" on how to deal with the situation and are considering installing a video surveillance system in the cemetery.
